I used the carb selector but the 7 carburetors introduced to me...I don't know which is better for me.
0-85670 (670cfm), 0-1850SA (600cfm), 0-1850S (600cfm), 0-1850C (600cfm), 0-85570 (570 cfm), 0-81670 (670 cfm), 0-4776c (600 cfm).
Tell us more about your engine combination (how it's built, horsepower, etc.).
With 400 cubic inches, I suggest at least a 670 CFM carburetor.
Some of them are single pumper and some are double pumper!!! What carburetor is better ??
I don't want to use my car for racing and professional drag, just beginner street race or street drag.
According to your statement, you'd be better off with an electric choke, vacuum secondary (single pumper) carburetor.
I suggest their new line of carburetors, the Ultra Street Avenger. Do you want a carburetor with a zinc body or aluminum construction?

my engine is v8 and 400 c.i.d and 220 hp , expected maximum RPM (Red line) is 5000 and the all of parts are standard ( not aftermarket ) ( just have headers ) ( my car is pontiac formula 1977 )
but i think at all , dual pumper is better single pumper. :)
670 isn't too much for my engine?!!
the carburetor body is not important. the good performance and Acceleration is important.

That's why I asked about your engine.
600 CFM (vacuum secondaries) is enough.

i think this carburetor is good for my car , http://www.holley.com/0-85570.asp
What is your opinion?

If you don't mind a manual choke, it will suit you fine.
04-01-2012, 07:11 AM
I don't think the difference is between manual choke and Electric Choke for me . ( but i`m not sure )
04-01-2012, 07:25 AM
Well, that's fine. Personally, I would not want to install a manual choke cable:

Excuse me, another question. :)
Which adapter kit or adapter plate should I buy? for Holley 0-83570?
I'm assuming you have a spread-bore intake manifold?
If so, you'll use Holley #17-6 spread-bore to square-bore adapter:
